    2323The Tor Project is looking for an intern to serve as a bridge between Tor’s non-technical users and Tor’s team of developers. We are looking for a user advocate — someone who can see how users interact with the Tor network and where there are issues, and then relay this information to developers. This person will also help the communications and community teams craft responses to highly technical questions from users, researchers, and the press. This person must be comfortable explaining technical concepts to non-technical people. We do not currently have an individual dedicated to this work. Instead, we call upon developers who may not have the capacity to follow up, which delays and lowers the quality of our responses.

    25 The intern will work closely with the Communication and Community Teams, and will also work with other teams at Tor. First steps include becoming familiar with Tor's development processes and user bases. Check out some of the [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/teams/CommunityTeam/Projects Community Team's] and [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/teams/NetworkTeam Network Team's] current projects.

     27Here are some examples of recent press inquiries where we could use an Outreachy intern to help us draft responses. Feel free to respond to one or more of these so we can see an example of your work!
     28
     29* When talking about free speech and Nazis, is there any easy outcome for the Tor Project, or is this sort of controversy inherent to the technology? If the latter, what is the right response for governments – and activist groups – to take to fight their targets without making Tor collateral damage? What are the positives of the service that people should be aware of before viewing it as a pure negative?
     30
     31* Is ANONABOX better or worse than Tor? Can you combine the two, and, if so, would that be even better?
     32
     33* Ever heard of double encryption or double VPN? Would that provide strong security?
     34
     35* How safe is Tor? Does it give absolute anonymity? or is there still room to improve? If so, how?
     36
     37* Why is the Tor network threatening to law enforcement and at the same time essential to freedom and anonymity for many people around the world?
